Woburn Sculpture Gallery. Black tie. Awards. Sounds pretty sophisticated, huh? And so it was. On the evening of 10th May 2015 at the MK Food and Leisure Awards 2015, in the most beautiful settings, all of this year’s winners were revealed.
The public voted for their favourite destinations, restaurants, bars, coffee shops, hotels and, of course, people, who are often overlooked but greatly contribute to any victory, the chefs and waiting staff. Also this year we found out the best local product and drink, as these new categories were added to the line up to emphasise the importance of locally sourced produce.
On this occasion we had the honour of presenting two awards: ‘Best Restaurant’, which went to Woburn Brasserie, and ‘Best Newcomer Restaurant’, won by The Prince George. It felt a bit like the Oscars ceremony, being on stage, breaking the seal on the envelope and then seeing genuine happiness and tears of joy! A very emotional and fun experience.

The organisers prepared an extraordinary evening throughout which we not only tasted delicious food and wine and were entertained with live music from The Shures, but we also managed to raise £2000 from a charity raffle for Willen Hospice. This is what we call a great night out – take part(y) in style.
